BAE SYSTEMS Regional Aircraft has signed an agreement with Air France-owned Dublin-based CityJet for the lease of an additional BAe 146-200.
The aircraft will be delivered in mid-October in time for the start of the new four times daily service between London City Airport and Dublin.
With this aircraft CityJet's BAe 146 fleet will number 14 aircraft. Carrying one million passengers per year and with 90% of its operations from the French Capital, CityJet operates five franchise routes on behalf of Air France between Paris CDG and Dublin, London City, Edinburgh, Florence and Gothenburg and, from the start of the winter season, Zurich.
Cityjet launched Cityjet.com to the general public earlier this year catering for the Costa Del Sol market and offers direct access to Cityjet flights on the popular Dublin - Malaga route with five direct services per week.
